Vic­to­rian Va­ri­ety Bash stops in to en­joy Cun­na­mulla hos­pi­tal­ity

Western Times - - NEWS -

MORE than 85 out­landish cars roared into Cun­na­mulla on Mon­day, show­ing lo­cals the Vic­to­rian Va­ri­ety Bash had well and truly hit town.

It had taken them five days to get this far and it was no mean feat – they’d driven 716km from Ti­booburra and been on the road since the early morn­ing

Three hun­dred peo­ple con­verged on the Cun­na­mulla Fella for din­ner af­ter the long drive and thor­oughly en­joyed the lo­cal hos­pi­tal­ity, said Va­ri­ety Bash spokes­woman Ali­cia Pen­treath.

“The cars are trav­el­ling from Gee­long to Townsville and Cun­na­mulla was one of the stops for the en­trants,” she said.

“They got to en­joy a nice, hot meal and a wellde­served night’s rest and re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the com­mu­nity help­ing out with cater­ing.”

Cun­na­mulla was a much-loved, al­beit brief, stopover for many of the Vic­to­rian driv­ers, Ms Pen­treath said.

“Our bash­ers loved Cun­na­mulla. They al­ways en­joy stop­ping into var­i­ous places along the way each year, and a lot of them had never been there be­fore.

“By all re­ports, they had an amaz­ing time.”

Decked out in their wild cos­tumes, the fleet rolled out early on Tues­day to reach Emer­ald by the end of the day.

The Vic­to­rian it­er­a­tion of the bash has al­ready been a long haul this year, hav­ing started in Gee­long.

They will fin­ish in Townsville on Satur­day.
